According to the barometer of the public order of the ADCF and the Caisse des Dépôts, the activity in this area has shown some encouraging signs in the beginning of the year 2017.
“Public order : A wind of recovery in 2017 ?” It is thus that the assembly of communities of France (ADCF) and the Caisse des Dépôts (CDC) have presented the results of their last barometer.
In fact, in the first quarter of 2017, the activity was increased by 4.4% compared to the previous three months. “We know that the first quarter of 2016 had been marked by a level of activity high enough due to the anticipation of the changes to the rules of the public order,” notes the ADCF, in a press release. “The activity was then declined, so unusual compared to other years. In fact, the growth of the first quarter of 2017, compared to the third and fourth quarters of 2016 deserves to be reported. A tremor is noticeable.” The bulk of this improvement relates to the work of renewal.
A decrease of 4.3 per cent year-on-year
However, year-on-year (first quarter of 2017, compared to the same period in the previous year), the situation is not as positive. The evolution is, in fact, of 4.3 per cent (800 million euros less). “Some actors know of the progressions, like the commons, but that did not offset the declines of the orders of other public purchasers,” observes the ADCF.
As a reminder, the same barometer had recorded, for the year 2016, an activity level of 72 billion euros to the public order, or a “historically low level”.
